Wildcat is a Canadian mineral exploration and development company focused on its 80% owned Hermosa property located in Santa Cruz County, Arizona.
The Hermosa property currently has two distinct projects: Hermosa NW, a carbonate replacement zinc-lead-silver sulfide mineral exploration project; and Hermosa Central, a silver-manganese manto oxide development project. Hermosa NW has a resource calculated in accordance with NI 43-101 and is currently being drilled to test the limits of that resource. Hermosa Central’s December 2013 prefeasibility study indicates it is expected to be one of the largest primary silver producers as well as the only electrolytic manganese metal producer in the USA at industry low cash costs. The pre-feasibility study estimates annual production of 5.7 million ounces of silver and 110 million pounds of electrolytic manganese metal (EMM) at average cash costs of $4.41 per silver ounce and $0.74 per EMM pound over an 18 year mine life.
Wildcat Silver trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol “WS”.
